Welcome to le Moulin du Clapier, a 15th Century old French Manor house in the heart of the Dordogne region of South West France. Ideally located between Périgeux and Thiviers and less than 1km from the local village of Sorges, le Moulin du Clapier provides a great base for exploring the local area and all the attractions it has to offer.
Ideal for families who wish to holiday together or alone the two gites cater for up to 10 people offering outdoor dining, heated shared swimming pool and tranquil gardens surrounded by rolling hills and fields of sunflowers and corn.
Perfect for getting away from it all and spending quality time with the people who matter the most in a tranquil and beautiful location.
Nearest airports are Limoges and Bergerac which are both less than an hour away and Bordeaux slightly further afield at 1h30.
The village of Sorges is famous for its Truffles and has its own museum. There is equally a bakery and small supermarket in the village as well as an Auberge which serves good local food and wine. Further a field, all main shops can be found in Périgeux so civilisation is just around the corner for those needing it.
Outside the back of the property leads to the gardens which are just over 1 hectare in size. Beyond the gardens leads onto 50km of marked trails which meander around the various walnut, dairy, goose and duck farms.
No stay is complete without a visit to Brantome (“the Venice of the Dordogne”) where visitors can wander around the cobbled streets, or have lunch / dinner at one of the various restaurants or cafes along the river. Périgeux, Sarlat-la-Canéda are also within easy reach and are a must on any travelers list of places to visit.
For those wishing for more leisure activities the Dordogne is perfect for cycling and running. The rolling hills will test the endurance of the keenest cyclist however there is always the possibility of stopping by one of the many “Plan d’eau” facilities to take a well earned break and to cool off in the warm water. The closest Plan d’eau is located just outside of Thiviers and offers supervised lake swimming, beach, shaded grass area, play park for the kids and a local cafe for snacks and refreshments.
